    In these economic times, putting people down because they can or cannot afford certain packages seems churlish on both ends

    Take the time to read some of the previous posts of the person you think is being put down and you'll see it's not churlish.

    Not even thinking of the bad economic times, there are some here who think paying to see movies that have been out for years is not worth the premiem package cost. So you all be happy with your channels, but the rest of us would sure like something new also.

    I'll bet you used to go into Circuit City and demand to speak with the mayor.

    They didn't because they were terrific at one time. The name brand kept them going for a while. I still shopped them until the end. They still had good deals on stuff.

    I had both a Circuit City and Best Buy within a mile of my home. Shopped both of them all the time. Majority of the time I got the better deal on the same stuff at Circuit City. I liked walking around in Best Buy better, but the better deals were found at CC. Wish they still were around.

    Nasa HD speculation - Directv is running a trailer that Directv customers will require an HD receiver and HD access to continue seeing Nasa TV beyond August 3, 2011. WooHoo! Maybe my celebration is premature, though...

    I guess I'm confused that you would have to pay the $10 HD access fee to get SD Nasa TV. Oh well, not everything needs to make sense... or they got that part wrong in the trailer, or they are going to eliminate the $10 fee.

    OK, I guess it is what it is.

    Yes, DIRECTV will still offer NASA TV on Channel 289. However, starting August 3, 2011, NASA TV will only be available to customers who have DIRECTV HD equipment and are subscribed to HD Access ($10/month). But please note: NASA TV will remain a standard definition channel.

    Technically, Circuit City lives on [link], just no more brick and mortar locations. Tiger Direct bought the rights to the name along with the Comp USA name [link]. They opened several Comp USA locations in my area, where they sell TV's, receivers, PC's, laptops, accessories, etc . And sometimes they have great open box accessories they sell. I bought about $350 worth of accessories at their current web prices for about $30 (powered HDMI splitters, HDMI switchers, universal notebook power supply and more).

    Didn't seem like it, you're all rambling on about how you miss Circuit City and stuff. (I've always been a Best Buy man myself).
